What is Holy Laughter?

The Holy Spirit knows exactly what we need and how to deliver it to us. Holy laugher is a similitude of spontaneous laughter that is an utterance led by the Holy Ghost. Before we go deeper, I'd like to discuss the importance of the many roles of the Holy Spirit.

He is part of the Godhead. (God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit)

Abba Father is in Heaven. Jesus has ascended to heaven. Holy Spirit is here on earth working with us. He has been on earth since before Jesus was born.

Genesis 1:2

And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

The Holy Spirit is the 7 Spirits of God

  • The Spirit of the Lord

  • The Spirit of Wisdom

  • The Spirit of Understanding

  • The Spirit of Counsel

  • The Spirit of Might

  • The Spirit of Knowledge

  • The Spirit of the Fear of the Lord

Isaiah 11:2

And the spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord;


The Holy Spirit gives out the measures of gifts according to His will. Each gift is special and God wants us to use them. Can you imagine having precious gifts that a loved one gave you and not wanting to open them? What if you decided that you only wanted gifts that made you feel comfortable with your discomfort?

1 Corinthians 12:11

He also distributes gifts at the measure of His choosing.

But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.

Have you ever felt sad or hurt and a friend tried to make you laugh about something? This is very common and even animals try to cheer up their owners. Why do people do that? Because laughing is a healing ointment. Some people have made this complicated when it's not. God does not want you depressed and sometimes, He'll unction you to laugh. He doesn't want you to worry either. He'd rather you laugh at the plan of the enemy.

God laughs; so why shouldn't you?

Job 8:21

Till he fill thy mouth with laughing, and thy lips with rejoicing.

Here's a list of the 9 fruits of the Spirit of God

  • Love

  • Joy

  • Peace

  • Longsuffering

  • Gentleness

  • Goodness

  • Faith

  • Meekness

  • Temperance

Galatians 5:22-23

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

Some people will argue that joy is not holy laughter but who are we to determine for God how He should operate? Cessationists don't believe in any revelatory gifts and want them to cease. Scripture tells us not to quench the Holy Spirit. We are supposed to use the gifts for God's glory. We should also demonstrate the fruits of the Spirit.

I've seen people invest and believe in psychics but not prophets of God. Is the devil mightier than God? No! The devil can only attempt to duplicate and manipulate what God has already set in order. It's terrible to give more credit to the enemy than God. As a matter of fact, it's absurd!!!

When someone is experiencing holy laughter, the Holy Spirit is laughing through them. Here are a few things that happen during that blessed time.

  • Depression is rooted out

  • Sadness goes

  • Worry is cut down and no longer exalted

  • Receive more joy

  • Increased trust in God

I released a short video of when I prayed with children and they began to laugh. Some people were overjoyed and some said that it was the work of the devil. I asked these questions.

Does God want His children sad or happy?

If one can speak in tongues through the utterance of the Holy Spirit, why not laugh?

Since when is the devil removing sadness, defeat, worry, and condemnation and replacing it with joy?

Matthew 1:18-20

Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost. Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put her away privily. But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.

So the Holy Ghost can impregnate Mary with Jesus but He cannot use laughter?

I knew that several people did not have an intimate relationship with God but they were very quick to say what was and was not Him. God has all understanding. If we do not understand something, it's best to seek Him for clarity. It may require fasting and prayer to build up faith and removal of emotions and other voices. But it's better to seek the Lord than to blaspheme the Holy Ghost.

Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men. And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come.

God wants us to be like a child because we are His children. Being against laughter from the Holy Ghost is not being fully submissive to whatever God wants to do.

Mark 3:28-30

Then was our mouth filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing: then said they among the heathen, The Lord hath done great things for them.


Prayer for Receiving Joy:

Lord, I repent for all sins including my sins, the sins of my ancestors on my mother's side and my father's side. I repent for not being open to receiving Your joy. I may not understand everything about You but I know that You'd rather me be happy than sad. You'd rather I'd laugh than cry. I repent for all cessationism trying to stop the flow of the precious Holy Spirit. Lord, I yield my heart, my mind, and my body to You completely. I'm ready to receive Your amazing joy right now. In the name of Jesus. Amen!



Never think that you know everything about God. He is willing to teach you. Just ask.

I love you beloved, but God loves you the most!!!
